REVIEWS: The Book of Styling

As a lover of fashion and all things related to that wonderful, yet super competitive, industry, I have come across many moments where I've considered a possible career path down that direction. And although I have always loved the idea of pulling out unique pieces of clothing and putting them together to create amazing outfits (often spending way too much time in my closet), I've never really looked into what goes into becoming a professional stylist. Has anyone else thought that they have what it takes to be the next Rachel Zoe or Andrea Lieberman?

Well, before even taking a stab at styling someone else, you should definitely get to know your own personal style and fully grasp the concept of understanding what goes into that perfect outfit or look that you're going after. Where better to start than going through your own wardrobe? Everyone needs to start with the basics and this brand new book takes you through that process - helping you on your way towards fabulous days of successful styling!

The Book of Styling

From beginning to end, The Book of Styling is a great go-to guide with tons of tips and helpful advice. It starts at Chapter One with 'The Stylist Explained,' giving you a background of what exactly is the role of a stylist. From there, you go through other informative chapters full of fantastic illustrations, fun fashion element break-downs and even spaces to create your own mood boards.  She ends with the chapter on styling as a career and gives you that little kick to actually get out there and start making things happen!
